Is this a good deal?

I have had an Xj for a long time and always wanted a waggy. I came across this on Craigslist and the guy said he would let it go for a grand. I'm having a hard time trying to get an idea of the value of these. Seems to me like a pretty good deal cause it looks pretty straight and clean and a good place to start. I haven't looked at it yet but may check it out tomorrow afternoon if it seems worth the time. Thanks in advance for any input on the value and any thing specific I should look for if I do go check it out.

Looks like a solid buy if it's as described. Electrical issue shouldn't be that hard. Could be something easy. If you are handy this looks like a solid start specially with 25,000 miles on the rebuild.

Good to hear. I didn't think it would be too much of a problem with the wiring. I should be able to figure it out. The guy also said the only reason it needs to be towed is cause it doesn't have plates or insurance. But that shouldn't matter once he signs the title over to me should it. If it had tags they would stay with him and as soon as I buy it I am the one responsible for the insurance. Right?

I wouldn't buy it until I drove it. Be wary about listing saying it has to be towed away when they say that it runs. They may not want you to hear/feel something. Sounds like a solid deal. I am out here in the Springs too if you want to wheel that thing on Gold Camp road.

I hear ya. I definitely won't buy a car unless they at least allow me to drive it around the block unless they wanted to unload it dirt cheap. Even if I don't grab that waggy I'd like to wheel anyway. I have a relatively capable Xj.

Alright. And while your checking the electrical I'd see if the ignition solenoid on the passenger side wheel well. It might be sticking. Tap it with a hammer and see if there's voltage after you key off.

I'd like to go this weekend or next if you can make it. I am buttoning up a hot 401 this week that I've been itching to run since September.
